SEDA looking to appoint new UK distributor

Seda depollution equipment
SEDA are looking for a new distributor in the UK for their extensive range of depollution equipment
The name SEDA is well known as a supplier of depollution equipment in the UK and they recently announced the ending of their agreement with UK distributor, Dale Processing Equipment Ltd.

The company have advised us that they are to restart and build up a new structure in the United Kingdom and in the meantime, if you need to be supplied with any original spare parts, stations or recycling equipment, please order directly from SEDA. During this period whilst a new UK distributor is being appointed, your contact for both orders and questions is Bruce Henderson who can be contacted either by phone (+44) 20812 33154 or email. To demonstrate their commitment to the market they recently joined the MVDA.

At the moment they are in negotiation with a few established UK companies, with a view to appointing a new SEDA Partner for Great Britain. Until a new Partner is presented, they would be pleased if you could get in contact with them directly. You can find out about their latest products and current news online at SEDA's website.

SEDA are planning several service tours in the near future, to give their UK customers the opportunity to get a complete service or repair on what they say will be a very low cost base. Existing customers will receive further information over the following days by post.

With over 20 years of research and development and more than 2,800 dismantling companies worldwide using SEDA technology daily, they are confident that they can provide both current and future customers with the equipment and service to satisfy all of their ELV de-pollution and recycling tool needs. They tell us that SEDA means quality on the highest level and good value for money. To find out more, visit their website.
